Another crisis for the liar in chief to exploit?
It’s political —NRA holds it’s national convention in Houston on Friday.
self inflicted, accidental as per WBAP radio./
I’m sure that after Bengazi, F&F, and a HUGE gun defeat that they would not bust out with this.
Ah....yeah I’m completely sure of it.
What a headline....
HPD: Man with AR-15 shoots himself at Bush Intercontinental Airport
HPD tells KHOU 11 News the shooting was self-inflicted and happened near a security checkpoint inside Terminal B.
There are no other reports of injuries.
KHOU 11’s Sherry Williams is on the scene and reports at least one ambulance is on the scene. She counted at least a dozen HPD squad cars.
Omg you are right!
Glenn is giving the keynote address today!
Sounds political to me.
The station reports that a body was found in the lobby of Terminal B of the airport. The elevator system was shut down in Terminal B.
Now on FOX! Some guy in the line pulled out an AR-15 and shot HIMSELF!
Ah, wow. A microsecond after Rush got off the air, too.
Knock me over with a feather.
Is it tomorrow or today? I thought Beck was giving the keynote tonight?
How “convenient” with the NRA convention going on in Houston....
Exactly... just how convenient is that.
So now while the press is reporting on the NRA convention.. they can conveniently mention that some guy shot himself with an “assault weapon”
It says on their site that live coverage starts tomorrow.
Suicide victim chooses an AR-15. In public. In an AIRPORT. The DAY BEFORE the NRA convention.
Gosh WHAT are the chances this guy is a liberal...?
I wonder if the liberal MSM will look into this..?
They turned the Ariz shooter apolitical nut into a hardcore Rush fan, so considering what is at stake I WONDER what they’ll turn THIS guy into, huh..?
Pulled it out of WHERE?
I mean - how'd he even get INTO the terminal with an AR?
Easy. It’s in Texas.
Obama ordered another cell to awaken?
How would he get something like that into a terminal?
“Pulled it out of WHERE?
I mean - how’d he even get INTO the terminal with an AR? “
The White House may be able to answer that.
The shooter walked in and fired two shots in the air and then shot himself in the head with a pistol, police said.
Police said an air marshal fired at the suspect, but missed. Thats when the man pulled out a gun and shot himself.
OH NO might been suicide attempt
According to some reporter in H-town

At the George Bush airport too.
Nice touch, Obama.
Wonder if the guy is dead?
I know right?!
Um, walk in? There’s no security until you hit the security line. A collapsed stock AR isn’t that big - one could easily fit in a rollerboard.
Is it too big for someone to shoot themselves in the head with though??
Glad he shot himself. Corralled, unarmed passengers waiting for TSA thugs to molest them would make it like shooting fish in a barrel.
This all stinks to high heaven.
post of the day..
Unwieldy, yes, but not too big. Another post with a link has it as a pistol tho’, which does make more sense.
Brings to an interesting story (about Texas).
A man had his daughter sexually assaulted.
The man tracked down the person who did it and killed him.
When the man went to trial (for killing the rapist), he used a Texas law that says Some People Just Need To Be Killed. as his defense.
He was acquitted/let go based on that defense: some people just need to be killed.
I guess this guy thought that he needed to kill himself...
Yeah but how do the reports go from an AR-15 to a pistol?
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -
A spokesman for the Houston Police Department reports that a firearm was discharged around 1:35 p.m. Thursday at Bush Intercontinental Airport.
A stringer with FOX 26 News says someone’s body was found in the lobby of Terminal B of the airport.
The elevator system was shut down in Terminal B.
I’m hearing that he walked up to the security checkpoint and fired the AR-15 into the air a couple of times. An air marshal fired at him and missed, then the perp pulled out another pistol and shot himself. Ambulance there, he may still be alive?
Hubby just left about an hour ago to help set up for the NRA convention. He does the check-in to inspect any guns that are brought in for the booths, etc. I’ve been telling him for the last couple of days to watch out for someone trying to disrupt the convention, that some anti-gun nut was going to try and make news.
It’s a good thing that the guy was the only one hurt. It should be interesting to find out about the guy’s background.
Was the man in costume??? Just head FOX report he was dressed as an “unitelligble” I don’t always understand Shepspeak.
Usually, the talking heads on the local news can’t bring themselves to call it Bush Airport. Instead, I’ve noticed a trend where they all call it “the Big Airport”.
Today, I’m sure they’ll relish pointing it out as Bush Airport.
There’s no max size for luggage outside of security. I’ve seen some pretty big stuff, bigger than 24”, inside security too.
